Great episode to kick off the new season, and an excellent continuation of the drama at the end of Season 3. And who doesn't love a Thanksgiving Hooker?
Don is now coming to grips with the fact that he can no longer be the mystery man in the shadows - who steps into the light only to drop his divine campaigns onto a thankful world. I'm also looking forward to Don figuring out the new love interest, Bethany; she of the butter-squirting and gymnastic ilk.
A thrilling end, and we have Don re-inventing himself again as the face of SCDP. He no longer wants boring traditional clients, and plans to only take on clients who want the most forward-thinking representation 1964 has to offer.

I talk for a living, and given such - there's a few phrases that I've noticed are getting way overused these days. I'm going to call them out for you - and then you can enjoy being shocked for the next week when you realize how often you hear them:
"At the end of the day...."
"It is what it is."
The last one is my most despised. It's a total cop-out phrase, and has no relevance to anything. A three second 'sighhhhh' would declare the same turn of phrase. Clearly IT is what IT is.
It has dawned on me that perhaps the usage of these phrases could be a regional phenomenon - or perhaps unique to my particular line of work.
But, it is what it is.
